A blind man and his guide dog could be made homeless by a disabled charity which is looking to sell-off his home.
Stephen Steppens, 54, has worked for Clarity, a 160 year-old charity employing blind and disabled people in Highams Park, for nearly three decades.
Mr Steppens lives with his black Labrador, Owen, in a house owned by the charity in Bruce Grove, Tottenham.
He was been employed by the charity which makes toiletries and cleaning products for 29 years and moved into one of four terraced houses owned by Clarity in February 2006 after having a bad experience on a council estate in Islington.
The receptionist said he believed it would be his home for life as the homes, erected in memory of the charity's founder Elizabeth Gilbert, were held under a protected trust.
But he has now been served a repossession order twice by the charity and has been given until Friday to leave or face legal action.
The 54-year-old blind since birth says he has nowhere to go.
"It is very stressful and very upsetting as I enjoy my home and have a very trusted neighbour,” he said.
"I like the company and the job I do but I need stability.
“It's very difficult to talk about the depression I have felt since finding out they want to evict me, and the thought of moving again is a very daunting prospect.
"My worst fear is being homeless with Owen. I've got no family in the area, there is no-one for me to live with.”
A part-time staff member and two former employees have vacated the three other homes in Bruce Grove voluntarily and moved in with family members.
Mr Steppens has sought the support of trade union, Community, who is making a last-ditch attempt today to avert Friday's eviction.
Bev Bambrough, education and equalities director at Community, said: "Being evicted will be devastating for Stephen. We are astonished how Clarity is treating a loyal and hard-working employee.
"Clarity was established to support blind people and help them become independent but evicting Stephen from his home seems far away from that objective.
"Being blind, Stephen’s home needs to be set up in a very particular way, which makes it difficult for him to find a suitable alternative.
"We hope Clarity will recognise their moral duty to help Stephen and won’t evict him on Friday."
Mr Steppens and representatives from Community and Tottenham MP David Lammy's office will be meeting with Clarity's CEO Jeremy Robinson this afternoon.
Mr Robinson has declined to comment.
